Lower age of consent to 13 to protect old men from ‘persecution’: top pro-abortion lawyer
LifeSiteNews ^ | 5-9-13 | Hilary White

Posted on 05/09/2013 8:02:05 PM PDT by ReformationFan

A proposal by a leading pro-abortion lawyer to lower the age of sexual consent from 16 to 13 to protect “old men” who molest young people from legal “persecution,” is being met with outrage in the UK.

“I do not support the persecution of old men,” Barbara Hewson wrote recently in Spiked online magazine. “England has a long history of do-gooders seeking to stamp out their version of sexual misconduct by force of the criminal law.”

Formerly Great Britain continues to wither away. "There's always be an England" has changed to "There's no England anymore".

Miss Hewson's proposal should go over very well with the Islamist population of the UK.

Didn’t Theodore Roosevelt raise the age of consent from 9 to 12?

If they are old enough to walk in a grocery store and buy an abortion day after pill wo their parents knowing(here in USA) , they are old enough to say ‘yes’ to pops.

Welcome to modern America. Setting trends

Abortion is for men so they can live the life of 17 year olds for as long as they wish.

Women are stupid for falling for this and for killing their kids for it.

When the men start coming out in numbers, masses against abortion AND birth control, what it does to women and their babies, I’ll recant, not until

There are two sexes, the one most responsible for abortion is the female sex, they are not voting against it, polling against it, and they are the ones having the baby aborted.

Men poll as more anti-abortion and vote as more anti-abortion.

It is wrong to portray women aborting their babies as them having fallen victim to a male imposed agenda.

At his late age, after a life of selling merchant goods and married to an older woman, his becoming the creator and ‘Jesus’ of Islam converted him into a massacring warlord of conquest, murder, rape and pillage, and additional wives and concubines, including his favorite, the six year old.

Some people think that shows, well, a kind of flaw in the foundation of Islam.

It’s for men and by men.

Who gets the most benefit from abortion? Men or women?

Since men don’t have babies, and the purpose of abortion is to stop being pregnant and to not have a baby, and only women get pregnant and have babies.

I would say that it is mostly a woman thing, as most polls and most voting in elections shows.

Men tend to be less pro-abortion than females in most polls, and they vote more pro-life.

I agree. Women have fallen for the left's twisted language objectifying life in the womb. When the child is dehumanized and objectified before it's even born, it's not such a big step to allow that same child to be abused sexually outside the womb. If the child has no intrinsic value of its own, its position (inside the womb or outside of it) doesn't really matter, does it? It remains an object to be used not an individual with inherent dignity. The left's view of children just sickens me sometimes.

Yeah. We go with polls so much, here.

When men vote with their feet and stop going with women for “just one thing” and start voicing rage against abortion

I’ll buy that abortion isn’t primarily for them.

Til then. . .

Voting with your feet means voting, men don’t just poll more pro-life than women, they vote majority pro-life, while women vote majority pro-abortion democrat in every election.

Plus 100% of abortions, are had by a female, not 100% of those abortions are wanted by men, or even known to have happened, by men.

Any man who has sex with anyone he’s not married to, doesn’t care about the child.

He’s in a worse position. He doesn’t know if his child has been killed by its mother.

He’ll never know.

We have a lot of these guys walking around. their consciences are dead.

If this leftist **** and others like her EVER facilitated the rape of my 13 year old daughter, I would personally torture and kill every single one of them. It would be my only mission in life.

During the debate over the “morning after” abortion pill, Obama mentioned that the FDA “will have to consider” lowering the age to 13.

So yes, it looks like 13 is the magic age, for now.

this is only partly true. only some guys look at it that way.

more women want abortion because they don’t want the children. for whatever reasons. it gives them their control.

you can’t put it on the guys, they legally have no say whether a woman has a child or not. until both have an equal say, it rests on the woman. if the guy won’t marry you and threatens to leave if you don’ t put out, he’s not worth marrying. dodge the bullet.

wen women stop giving it away for free and demand marriage first, things will start coming around for te better. it won’t happen because schools and parents teach being a whore is her right and it’sempowering

We homeschooled our kids. I ran for school committee. I was a big brother. I talk to people. Try to teach the teachable. Don’t buy newspapers. I do what I can do. That’s all each of us can do.

The bad news is that Obama is pushing over a rotten tree. The communists have already destroyed the fabric of society through the schools, media, and arts.

Heck, the feminists won't even object to physicians pumping women full of carcinogenic birth control to make them a sexual playground for men. And now we see they don't object to teen girls getting the stuff over the counter for use as frequently as desired.

We don't see men pumping themselves full of carcinogens for the sexual convenience of women. We don't see teen boys given carte blanche to fill themselves with OTC chemicals whose long term effect we don't even know. We don't see men inserting objects (coils, sponges, etc) into their bodies for the sexual convenience of women. Or getting injections or implants, etc.

Yep, abortion is for men alright, just as most other forms of birth control are for the convenience of men. That's why we have condoms for males but more forms than you can count for women.

Women with good husbands who are providers want children. Takeaway formula bottle feeding and you have natural spacing, so, not the unprecedented one after the other that the women of the 1950s had, who pushed for all of this crap.

When you go out visiting for mothers day, see how many women in their 50s whine about having too many kids.

I’ll bet none.
